Happy Where I AM April 15, 2010

It’s been a while since my last post. Things keep moving right along. The older I get, the more I realize what a great life I have. I’m always writing about being grateful and kind. Both are important. I also think it’s important to be observant. Check out what is right under your nose. We worry too much about what we don’t have. What does our friend have that we want. Where did they go that I haven’t been? Look much thinner is that person than I am? What about looking at what we DO have. If we spend too much time dwelling on where we “want” to be or what we “wish” we had, we’ll forget to appreciate what we have and where we are right now. Another thing we have to remember is that if we keep saying how unhappy we are it will make those around us feel like they are somehow to blame. I read an interesting thought on a card the other day. It said “Happiness is where you plant it.” I believe that is true. A few little things to be happy about… lady bugs, chocolate, naps, smiles, sunsets…
